iPhone X–style iPad Pro being readied for 2018

Apple is working on a new version of its iPad Pro that will take design cues and a number of other features from the recently released iPhone X.

A report from business site Bloomberg, citing anonymous insiders, claims Apple will release at least one iPad Pro with Face ID scanning security and no home button.

This could be a new edition of the 10.5–inch iPad Pro launched earlier this year.

The addition of Face ID and the decision to get rid of the home button will also allow Apple to tweak the design, say the sources, with plans to slim down the bezels at the top and bottom of the tablet.

The move fits into Apple’s wider plan, mooted by a number of tech watchers, to bring an end to Touch ID fingerprint security.

Interestingly, Apple will apparently not use OLED tech for the new iPad Pro’s screen, instead relying on a brighter version of the existing LCD panel.

OLED production problems are said to be to blame for the delayed launch of the iPhone X.

The new iPad Pro is expected to launch in late 2018.
